Hello my name is Rachel, I am a fully qualified and insured free-lance make-up artist, based in Paisley Town Centre. I started Makeup By Rach in February 2017, whilst still studying at college to begin gaining experience and build clientele. Currently I am working both from home and on a mobile basis, covering Paisley, Renfrewshire, Glasgow, Scotland and further afield when required.
I studied at West College Scotland, Paisley Campus for 3 years, covering Beauty Therapy and Make-Up Artistry. When I graduated in November 2018 with an A in HND Makeup Artistry, I began working full-time as a free-lance makeup artist and hair stylist. Covering all aspects of make-up and hair, including wedding make-up, special occasion make-up, glam make-up, night out make-up, special effects make-up, television, film & theatrical make-up, as well as hairstyling, updos and braids. I mainly focus on occasion make-up, both glam and natural, for events, nights out, dates etc, wedding and bridal make-up. Another area I specialise in is TV, film & theatrical make-ups with or without special effects make-up and prosthetics.
Everything about my job, I love and there is nothing more rewarding than being chosen to help my clients get ready for their big day or event, or working towards a large project for tv or theatre. My clients are the most important thing to me, and I always aim to make them happy and exceed their expectations! Makeup, hair and beauty has always been a passion of mine and with help and support from family, friends and clients (old and new) I have been able to turn my passion into a career. This is such a rewarding job to have and being able to see myself grow as an artist has been incredible!
Thank you all so much for supporting my small local business, and making this Paisley MUA so happy!!
